Beyoncé Creates A Scholarship For Female College Students
April 23 marks a year since Beyoncé released her album Lemonade.
To celebrate the album’s success, Beyoncé herself has established a scholarship for college students called Formation Scholars. The scholarship will be made eligible to women at four colleges (got your pen and paper ready?): Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College.
Beyoncé announced the news via Knowles’ official website and stated that the award is geared toward female students,
“who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”
One scholarship will be awarded to a lucky student from each of the participating schools during the 2017-2018 school year.
Other eligibility requirements include that the recipient be an incoming student pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature, or African American studies.
Okay, ladies, now let's get in formation!
